Interface IPresentationDamager

All Known Implementing Classes:
DefaultDamagerRepairer, RuleBasedDamagerRepairer

public interface IPresentationDamager

A presentation damager is a strategy used by a presentation reconciler to determine the region of the document's presentation which must be rebuilt because of a document change. A presentation damager is assumed to be specific for a particular document content type. A presentation damager is expected to return a damage region which is a valid input for a presentation repairer. I.e. having access to the damage region only the repairer must be able to derive all the information needed to successfully repair this region.

This interface must either be implemented by clients or clients use the rule-based default implementation DefaultDamagerRepairer. Implementers should be registered with a presentation reconciler in order get involved in the reconciling process.

Method Detail


void setDocument(
IDocument document)
Tells the presentation damager on which document it will work.

document - the damager's working document


IRegion getDamageRegion(
ITypedRegion partition,
DocumentEvent event,
                        boolean documentPartitioningChanged)
Returns the damage in the document's presentation caused by the given document change. The damage is restricted to the specified partition for which the presentation damager is responsible. The damage may also depend on whether the document change also caused changes of the document's partitioning.
